Default Kachina Powerboats calling out ALL boating manufacturers...

OK guys, so this was posted over on Hotboat and I figured we could make it a bi-coastal deal. Here's the exact quote from the thread:

Who cares about a paint job? Our customers have the option of putting whatever they want on thier boats and we are happy to do it for them. Do you get mad at yourself because you have a boat that looks like a thousand other boats out there that I guarantee you overpaid for? Not sure you tell me. As for the Donzi and Fountain thing - the customer has friends that own these boats and he likes to rufffle thier feathers. By the way, this guy can afford to buy any boat he wanted but guess where he decided to go. He is running twin 600SCI's so I guarantee he's no slug in the water! As far as our build qualtiy - I invite anyone on this forum to come to our shop and see first hand how we construct our boats so this BS can come to an end. Since I have worked at Kachina I have also come to realize that the only people that have a problem with Kachina are the people that dont own them and have never probably even ridden in one ( except for Jordy's little buddy). I will challenge the ride and build quality of our boats to any other manufacturer out there!
Seems like a pretty steep challenge to me. Any takers???

Here is the thread that started it:

Looks like Fountain is going down:



As well as the Donzi crew:



Crazy robot shark boats!!!

Yeah, I had my 30' Spectre too and I know it pale'd in comparison as it was all white and didn't have any kind of crazy robot sharks on it...

Kachina is a west coast lake boat builder. Their boats seem fine although I've never driven or riden in one. As far as taking on Fountain, Donzi and everyone else (I'm assuming they are including Cig, Outerlimits, Nortech, etc!) I'm sure their preferance would be on Havasu at 7AM when the water is glass because one footers is their idea if BIG WATER (and they'll say it was 3 to5's)!

Not sure where that thread went, but at the time I looked at it, all people were talking about was the ugly paint job. May be a well built great handling boat, but its UGLY!

Yep - I was interested in some buying an ultra (I'll take my beating now) I asked the guy how it handled in 3-4ft wakes and he said - lets be honest, in 3-4ft wakes all you are trying to do is get back to the docks.
